I started a sewing class on Monday, so I am officially on my way to learning a skill that will make me useful and perhaps someday be a job/creativity outlet. And since tailors exist everywhere, I can easily carry this on my back to Whereverland.
The spouse seems pretty happy right now, and not as stressed. Getting that application in definitely gave him some renewed confidence. He gets down this time of year because his advisor goes on a long vacation, and he often feels like he can't move forward as fast as he'd like.
On the depression/anxiety front, I've decided to increase my dosage (doc says it's alright). This is good, since I hurt my knee and can't go running. I don't know how long that will last, but after only a few days my body issues (which are rare) have come back. I don't think about that stuff when I can go out a few times a week and run around. But I feel really even, and I asked the spouse if he'd noticed any change in my temperment, and said I'd been really even. Maybe it's the medication, or maybe it's my attempts at productivity/meaning. I'm not going to test either one, but just be happy about it.
A friend is taking the GRE in 6 weeks, and I've decided to join her for that. I don't have any plans for grad school currently, but it would be a good thing to get out of the way, and an accomplishment that could help my self-esteem.
Being selfish is helping me. I'm filling my space and trying not to say "I'm sorry" so much.
